The Walking Dead, Season 8, Episode 1

So, this season begins with Rick, Ezekiel and Maggie leading the Alexandria, Hilltop and Kingdom groups to attack the Sanctuary. Carol and Morgan work with Tara and Daryl to get a huge group of walkers to the Sanctuary also. There is a face off between Rick and Negan, who has his soldiers with him. Eugene is one of them, as is Dwight. Rick tells Negan that is going to kill him, but he will let the others live if they surrender. They decide not to. Sneaky Gregory sidles out and he tries to tell Rick that the Hilltop do not agree with the attack, but Jesus says that they are with Maggie, not him. He gets pushed down the stairs by Simon.

There is a huge battle between everyone. Negan goes back inside to take cover. There are explosions and shooting everywhere. Rick wants to shoot Negan, but he just can't get him. Negan is hiding behind a metal sheet and Rick has to leave before they get into trouble. Gabriel is going to escape in a car, but Gregory takes it and he leaves Gabriel to hide in a trailer and who is in there? Negan. They are stuck in there together as the walkers are everywhere.The episode ends with Rick and Carl meeting a guy called Saddiq. Rick doesn't trust him, but Carl feels sorry for him. He leaves him some food. Then we cut to Rick crying and then the final scene has Rick smiling. He is a lot older and he is with Michonne, Carl and Judith. He is in Alexandria and things are good.

I enjoyed the premiere. It was good to see some action and it sets up the season nicely. I am intrigued by the flash forward of Rick as an older man. I wonder what will happen there. It will be interesting to see what happens with Negan also.All in all, a good start to the 8th season.
